Description: The Airbus A380F is a three-deck, long range freighter capable of carrying payloads of 150-ton over non-stop ranges of up to 10,400 km with the lowest unit cost of any freighter ever. It derived from the Airbus A380-800 Superjumbo high seating capacity airliner. The aircraft special layout will bring new efficiency standards to the cargo aircraft market. The A380-800F three decks can be filled with standard pallets and simultaneously accessible though five doors. These features and its growing potential make A380F well suited to high demand global supply chain management network. It is expected to enter into service in 2008.

On January 18, 2005, the first Airbus A380 was unveiled at Airbus' facilities in Toulouse, France. The president of France, Jacques Chirac, the German chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder, and the prime ministers of Great Britain and Spain, Tony Blair and Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, were present at the ceremony which marked an important milestone for the A380 program and Airbus company. Airbus A380F Freighter first metal cut occurred on 12 April 2005 at Airbus' site in Nantes, France. By the way, Airbus expressed its commitment to put into service the first of such an aircraft with a capacity of 150 tons of cargo by mid-2008. Finally, Airbus took the decision to reduce risk on the A380 program by cancelling the A380F freighter variant development.
